Guest heli206212 Posted June 2, 2007 Report Share Posted June 2, 2007 heli206212, I'm actually 28 years old. I'm just coming out of doing management, and technical sales. I've always wanted to be a CHP, and i've decided if i don't go for it, it will haunt me for the rest of my life. I've decided i'll go to what ever school is best for me. Vancouver, i just want to live there. It's a beautiful city. I'm sure Ryan, will back me on that one. I'm leaning towards Canadian Helicopters school in Toronto, but waiting tell i get some feedback on other schools. Planning to start September. If anyone has suggestions, i'd appreciate it.. Esp.. Since i don't have a aviation background. Bryan Hey Bryan, I have been giving you my experience and opinions, and as they say" opinions are like A** holes, la la la ". You know what I mean. It is just my thoughts, always ask other guys. As well have now know, everyone on this site have different opinions , experience, etc. Anyway, I hope that maybe some of what I tell might help. First, I trainined with Canadian and worked with them. I have nothing negative to say, had a great experience. But things have changed for studetns training there, They have no SprayProgram in Edmonton that I know of anymore, so it is hard to work with them after training. But as aI said, not sure about the program existing!! You are a good age and I would take a LEAVE from original work to do your course( maybe 6 months) and look for a job in helicopters. If you find nothing in that season, return back to your old job. You are lucky to have something to fall back on. Second, I lived in Vancouver for 3 years when I started out. Probably the most beautiful city in Canada, but still very experience. Also, Ryan is flying which equals money and your not, no disrespect. If you do not find work in the helicopter industry, where you gonna live and why. you have to pay loans back and want to keep your credit excellent for a raining day. Lots of money in the patch in Alberta, and B.C. , if you like. Third, remember to market yourself to helicopter operators with your Marketing and Sales skills. You could possible help an operator out there. Good way to get your foot in the door, and to get an Endorsement!!! Anyway, there is a lot to think about, so do what you think is best for you and complete your dream. Always have a good attitude and work hard. You still have time to check things out, and check them out again. haha All the best Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
